Nicholas Payne Santos Selects

“With the release of my short films HOLIDAY FEAR and MOTHER FUCKER on ARROW, I jumped at the opportunity to curate a selection of titles that would perfectly complement them. Bloody, campy and quintessential slashers, dark and twisted love stories, a Christmas horror-comedy, a gross-out satire and a long-lost porno parody. What more could you ask for? Sit back, relax and enjoy the scares, jokes and depravity.” — Nicholas Payne Santos
